TITLE: BLOOD BOUND
AUTHOR: PATRICIA BRIGGS
GENRE: URBAN FANTASY
RATING: 5 STARS
This is the second book in the Mercedes Thompson series. See review of Moon Called
During the events of Moon Called, Mercy becomes indebted to a local vampire, Stefan. Blood Bound starts out with him calling in that favor. What seems like a simple job of accompanying Stefan while he delivers a message to another vampire, turns into something a lot more dangerous. And Mercy isn't very happy when the werewolf pack decides to step in and help with the situation in order to keep her out of harms way.
This book just cemented my love of this series. Briggs does an amazing job with Mercy's continuing story. I loved watching as she becomes more involved with the local pack. Some of my favorite scenes were seeing Mercy claim her place among them, while still trying to maintain her distance from the entire supernatural world. The love triangle that started in Moon Called was advanced a bit, but overall it was just a small side story. But I can easily see things heating up in the next book! It was also very interesting to see more of the local vampire clan and how they operate.
Patricia Briggs knocks another one out of the park with a great story that grabs your attention and just holds on!
